Thalo Labs

New York, NY, USA
Posted on Tuesday, June 11, 2024
We’re Thalo Labs, a NYC-based company on a mission to transform the built environment into a powerful tool for fighting climate change. Where others see buildings as part of the problem, we see an incredible opportunity to leverage existing infrastructure to not only accelerate drawdown, but to transform the built environment from one of the biggest carbon emitters to a carbon sink. Our technology combines proprietary sensing, software, and capture systems to accurately measure, significantly reduce, and directly capture a building’s onsite greenhouse gasses in real time.
Our team has built self-driving cars at Waymo, worked on satellite imagery at Google, designed systems for John Deere, developed space missions for NASA, engineered bikes for Peloton, led manufacturing design for Boom Supersonic jets, and more. We are united by our shared goal of making products that
help us decarbonize today and accelerate drawdown globally.
As the Head of Commercialization, you'll shape our go-to-market strategy, our customer acquisition process, and drive new business opportunities. You're a creative leader, adept at piloting new revenue strategies and nurturing relationships. You can tackle both high level strategies and hands-on sales, seizing the unique opportunities in the sustainability sector from both market demand and novel financing mechanisms. With a collaborative, action-oriented approach, you’ll refine our product market-fit in partnership with the Head of Engineering to ensure we are meeting customer needs and scale through ingenious financing and incentives. We are looking for someone who has been successful at an early stage startup through growth, and wants back in.
